    RuralInvest Module 2 - Preparing and using project profiles
    A participatory approach to identifying and preparing small scale rural investments
    2007
    Also available in:

    In recent years, locally designed and managed investment projects have assumed increasing importance as effective tools for sustainable rural development. Supporting local communities to conceive and implement their own projects – whether for income generating activities or for social investments – not only ensures greater ownership and commitment to those projects, but also strengthens the capacity of communities to contribute to and manage their own development. However, the incr easing adoption of this approach by national governments, international financing agencies and rural banks has also highlighted the critical importance of providing adequate support and guidance to national technicians working with communities and other groups in identifying investment needs, defining potential projects, and developing them for external financing. RuralInvest answers this need by offering a series of modules, developed over a number of years and tested extensivel y in the field, which provide such support through a range of materials and training courses, and include technical manuals, custom developed software and instructors’ guides.
